MSMAS Judo YuDansha obtains 'top job' at World University Games in China ...

Peter White, a MSMAS YuDansha has been chosen to attend the World University Games in Shenzhen, China as part of the Great British Headquarters Team.


Peter White was chosen from hundreds of applicants to work at the Games, due to take place in August, as a Student Headquarters Administrator.

The World University Games is the second largest multi-sport event after the Summer Olympics, with over 12,500 competitors and officials taking part in more than 20 sports.

As well as a MSMAS YuDansha Peter is also Captain of the University of Sheffield Judo Club.

Head of Sport at the University of Sheffield, said: "We are thrilled that one of our students will be part of the Great British Headquarters Team at the World University Games. We were confident that Peter would be a very strong candidate for the position and I'm sure that he will do a brilliant job. Peter is a great example of how a student can embrace what university sport has to offer and directly benefit from it. He will also be an excellent ambassador for the University of Sheffield in China".

The Great British Headquarters Team is being put together by the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) and will consist of a HQ Manager, two HQ Administrators, a Press Officer and a Student Press Officer.

Neil Rogers from BUCS commented: "BUCS received a very strong response to the Student HQ Administrator role. Peter impressed the selection panel with both his written submission and his interview, where he ably demonstrated his aptitude and enthusiasm for the role. We have no doubt Peter is an excellent addition to Team GB."

Peter, who is due to start his role this month when planning begins for the summer games, said:

"I applied for the job because I really liked the challenge that the position offered me, as well as providing me with the opportunity to work alongside the BUCS team in supporting world class athletes as part of Team GB. I was elated when I was offered the role. The competition to get the job was very stiff so I felt privileged to have been selected and am excited to be part of this once in a lifetime experience. Through working with BUCS and Team GB, I am hoping to be able to gain valuable experience in helping with the team administration and to gain an insight into the requirements of running a top international sporting event."
